Read on to learn everything you need to know about managing your money and finding financial support
Learning how to handle your money makes good sense
You get a job for one core reason – because you need to earn money to pay for things.
But that money won’t just take care of itself. To graduate from pocket-money territory you need to learn how to control and manage your finances, take care of your tax obligations, and prepare for future expenses.
At MHSCareers, we’re experts in Careers, not Finance. So while we provide some general advice and can point you in the direction of resources to help you come to grips with your money, you need to seek independent professional advice for any major decisions.
You’ll also find some advice here about finding financial support to help you study. There’s lots of support out there, including Government assistance, as well as scholarships, bursaries, awards and grants, all of which can reduce your financial burden and help you concentrate on your studies.
